UPDATED: Missing dog whose owners were offering $2,000 reward has been found
The person who took her claimed she was being neglected.
FORT WORTH A Greater Swiss Mountain Dog named Heidi is missing in Fort Worth, and its owner is offering a $2,000 reward, "no questions asked."
[UPDATE: MyFOXdfw reports that the dog was stolen from the couple's home and was returned Thursday night. Says the news report, "The couple and friends posted flyers online, and the Guptons were shocked to find a nasty response on Reddit from the person who claimed they took the dog because that person was afraid she was being neglected."
Fox says Heidi's breed is used to cold temperatures.]
Original story: The dog is 10.5 months old, 65 pounds, and her owner reports she's friendly and happy-go-lucky. "Her distinctive gait -- lopey and still that of a puppy in a big dog body -- is unmistakable," owner Mary Clay Gupton wrote to Pegasus News. Her tail is tipped in white. She has brown eyebrows.
Heidi was not wearing a tag when she went missing December 6, 2013. Her owner believes someone sawed open the door to Heidi's covered dog run outside.
Writes Gupton: "She has been the balm to our wounds after the premature death of our prior Swissy (the nickname for this rare breed)."
Heidi was last seen in the North Hi-Mount/Monticello area of Fort Worth. If you have seen her, call 817-239-4223.
